Following an unfortunate situation, I received a court summons for travelling without a train ticket. I reached out to Samir Moftah at Manak Solicitors for help with my case.

From the first consultation, he reassured me that he would do everything within his power to get me the best result.

Samir was excellent assisting me an employment issue
Best solicitor we have ever dealt with. Very responsive, knowledgeable, most understanding and very professional. Special thank you to Samir, Sandeep and Mr Manak. I highly recommend them.
Samir Moftah was very professional and supportive thank you.
I had a quite complicated employment case. I spoke with solicitor Samir Moftah. He gave me very useful advice. I wish I could be in better financial position to appoint him to dispute my case for me. He was professional, kind and knowledgeable .
I had the pleasure of working with Aneeta Kang & Khaila Reid for just over a year whilst they supported me with my divorce. The advice provided was clear and concise, with a responsive and empathetic approach to a very stressful period of my life. I'd definitely recommend their services.
found Manak solicitors and particularly Surinder extremely helpful! with a no nonsense efficient approach. They managed my problem very quickly and at a very reasonable cost.
A legal dispute spanning over two years was a traumatic experience.I was lucky enough to have Ms Mali Smith at Manak Solicitors on my side. She was professional, attention to detail, a good listener (the best I have met with) and was easily approachable. Her diary was a perfection, I never had to follow up.The two words missing in her vocabulary were NO and CAN'T.I cannot thank Ms Smith enough for being a brilliant solicitor and an amazing person.
I had a problem with a commercial lease and break clause, which involved a business partner and a landlord in a shop premises in Bexleyheath.A document was made for me to sign before i left the lease and shop which i didn't understand too well. After contacting Surrinder at manak solicitors, he strongly advised me to not sign it as there was a clause in there that would still make me a guarantor for the lease over the next 7 years. Which in effect could of ruined me years down the line.He walked me through each step and told me what had to be done, it took a while to complete over 6 months but this was due to problems with the landlord and their solicitor. Surrinder and his team handled my case in a very professional manner, getting me out of the lease liability completely with any issues i may of had with my ex business partner.I cant thank them enough, if i hadn't sought their legal advice and used their services i would be in a very different position right now.Many thanks to all the team at The Gravesend and Orpington Branches.
I cannot thank Aneeta and Khaila enough for their help and support through what was a very difficult and stressful divorce process.
I can't thank Manak enough for dealing with a very sensitive family matter; all I can say is I wouldn't be as happy as I am today without their profesional support, special thanks to Aneeta.
Very pleased with the service from Ebru and Lauren. Will definitely recommend and use them again in the future.
I received Manak's details from MSE, so was confident that the service would be good, and we were not disappointed. Nosheen is very friendly, helpful and informative, and took us through the process of drafting our wills very efficiently. Nosheen answered all of our questions with professionalism and courtesy. We had a lot of questions, to make sure everything we were advised, was what we actually needed and Nosheen provided this. No matter how silly you may think your question is, please ask. I'm glad I did. Thank you Nosheen and the team. Dawn
